Return to NYC: What to Eat in the City This Month

The holidays have always been the season to indulge and – at least in that regard – this year is no different. We've rounded up new and exciting dishes and restaurants to try this month that we think embrace that spirit in the most delicious way possible (plus we've thrown in a few lighter, healthier options in case you need to pace yourself).

Angelina's Comes to New York

Can one ever have enough Gallic desserts? We certainly don't think so, and we're particularly excited about this opening from one of the most famous spots in Paris. Nibble on a croissant with a side of hot chocolate and pretend – if only for a moment – that you're enjoying it in the Tuileries Gardens. Learn More.

Chito Gvrito

We're more than on board with this new Georgian restaurant whose menu consists of multiple ways to consume melted cheese. We can't think of a more comforting food than that, and let's be honest, we could all use a little extra dose of coziness these days. Learn More.

Mark's Off Madison

While Barney's may be no more, you can still enjoy baked good from the former chef of Freds. Bread and lots of delectable carbs are the name of the game here; start off with a basket of homemade bread, move on to a plate of fresh pasta or the decadent suckling pig and potatoes, and finish it off with one of the many, many baked goods.
